Creatives

Might join a Publicis agency that recently got a new awesome VP/CCO. Hesitant because of the Publicis name, but she has a great rep and wants to hire more conceptual creatives. Thoughts?

If the agency is insulated and works independently, you’ll probably be fine. BUT if you are joining a Publicis agency that’s works as a “silo” filled with multiple agencies from under the main holding company then you’re probably in for a really bad time.

Also keep in mind a lot of Publicis clients are regionally and globally aligned accounts. Meaning a lot of layers and many cooks leaving ultimately a bland and tasteless idea.

Just post what the Publicis agency is. Might have some more specific insight into it.

@strat1 yeah, it seems to be getting better since the new CCO started

If the agency has a good CCO things will be fine. But working for Publicis Groupe you should expect an extremely frustrating process for getting raises
